Directing Contemporary American Drama is an Interdisciplinary Arts tutorial taught by Djola Branner.

Course Description

This introductory course examines and applies principles of directing through the lens of twentieth and twenty-first century American drama. Primary considerations are identifying the conflict of the play, investigating the world of the play, interpreting the action of the play, developing a collaborative language (with designers, playwrights and actors), and staging the play. The principles are examined in at least four written assignments, and a showcase of selected scenes from a list of contemporary plays TBA. Required texts: Three plays TBA, and Thinking Like a Director by Michael Bloom. Recommended text: A Director Prepares by Anne Bogart.
